Peterhead back at full strength for visit of Airdrie

Peterhead are back at full strength for the visit of Airdrie as Steven Noble, Nathan Blockley and Leighton McIntosh all return after injury.

In their absence the Blue Toon went down 1-0 to Albion Rovers and manager Jim McInally has ordered a rethink into how his team defends.

McInally explained: "We lost at Albion as we tried to play too much football in defence and it is not the first time that our trying to play out of trouble has cost us.

"We need to get back to basics just now, look to keep a clean sheet against a good Airdrie side and then build on that."

Airdrie add winger David Cox after suspension but Scott Smith is sidelined out by a knee injury and Jim Lister continues to remain out with a groin problem.

Diamonds manager Gary Bollan said: "Our 1-0 win over Brechin last weekend was not our best display of the season but it was an important three points to pick up as it lifted us into third place in the table.

"We secured a 1-0 win over Peterhead earlier this season and beat them 1-0 at the end of last season.

"It would be good to secure another one as they will be out to kick-start their season by beating us."
